Tbh I prefer stuffing myself with pancakes than dressing up like an eejit.

Shrove Tuesday. Would hear it often referred to as Pancake Tuesday though.

In my house growing up it was called 'shut the f*ck up, you're the youngest and not getting any pancakes, ya little boll1x'

I just called it Tuesday.

Sometimes I make pancakes when it's not even a Tuesday
